With new behavior options for connectors, it is now possible to define whether relation connectors are shown on diagrams or not, whereas earlier the connector was always drawn on diagrams if the relation existed. The previous "Relation" behavior option for connectors has been renamed to "Relation (single occurrence)". When selecting the new behavior option called "Relation (multiple occurrence)", you can define if relations are drawn automatically on the diagram by selecting "Draw relations automatically". In the case of multiple occurrences, the connector can now be drawn explicitly between the elements to set the relation between the elements.

There is also a new connector behavior called "Show in child diagrams" that can be selected for all connector types except auto-drawn relation connectors (or "Relation (multiple occurrences)"). When this option is not selected, the connector is now shown on the sub-diagram level when it is not connected to a diagram element. In the previous default functionality, the connector was always visible on the sub-diagram level.
